Dr Michael Naughton of Bristol University School of Law has calculated that each year over 4000 convictions are overturned by the courts. Miscarriages of justice are routine events. They can happen to any of us.
INNOCENT and UAI are calling upon the press, television and radio to support our work in Raising the Profile of Miscarriage of Justice - the theme of this year's meeting.
The meeting will take place at the Friends Meeting House, Mount Street, Manchester M2 on Saturday 15 October 2005.
Workshops will take place from 10.30 am, led by Kevin McMahon, Dr Andrew Green and Allan Bayle FFS (leading independent expert on fingerprint identification).
Between 1 and 2 pm campaigners will be out in Albert Square, close to the meeting.
The main meeting will run from 2.00 to 5.30 pm.
It will be chaired by Bruce Kent (nationally famous peace campaigner)
and introduced by Kevin McMahon (former Merseyside police detective, now the chair of Merseyside Against Injustice and spokesperson for UAI)
Mark Daly (BBC Rough Justice Reporter who exposed racism in Stockport police force)
Susan May (innocent, although still convicted of murder, from Oldham)
Dr Graham Smith (Lecturer at Manchester University School of Law)
Graham Huckerby (wrongly convicted of œ6.5m Salford armed robbery)
Dr Michael Naughton (University of Bristol Innocence Project, Lecturer in Law)
